Polluted river kills fish

Update: December, 21/2012 - 10:23

HA NOI (VNS)— Polluted water in the Lo River in northern Phu Tho Province has killed fish bred by householders in Doan Hung District's Huu Do Commune.

One resident, Tran Duc Nghia, said the pollution resulted from the release of waste water by An Hoa Paper Joint Stock Company, which started operation about a month ago in the neighbouring province of Tuyen Quang.

Nghia said he lost fish worth about VND100 million (US$4,700).

Locals have asked authorities in the two provinces to deal with the violation. — VNS
